Lee Library offers online Classical Music Library

The Harold B. Lee Library at Brigham Young University announces its new online Classical Music Library database with more than 35,000 music tracks now available to library users.

Classical Music Library is the world's largest multi-label database of recordings for listening and learning in libraries. Coverage of repertoire is increasing as new labels are added with a particular focus on contemporary music and women composers.

Never before have institutions been able to offer library users such ease of access to both recordings of the past and new releases, said Janet Bradford, music and dance librarian at the Lee Library.

Despite the name of the database, classical music is not the only genre available in the Classical Music Library. Such genres as film music, musicals and TV music can also be found on the database.

"Look for stage and screen music as well as a focus on contemporary titles and female composers," said Bradford.

Listeners can create folders of music to listen to or to download for a small fee. They can search the database by composer, artist, conductor, genre, instrument, ensemble or time period.

Classical Music Library can be accessed through library and campus computers as well as visited off campus using Route Y authentication. Visit the Library's website at www.library.byu.edu and view the music subject page in "Search all Disciplines," the "All Resources" link on the homepage or go directly through internal.byu.classical.com.

The recording label EMI provides the core content with thousands of titles. Ongoing negotiations are supplying more partners such as BMG Classics, Black Box, Mode, LSO Live and others.

For more information, contact Janet Bradford at (801) 422-7653.
